This week was a really good week, and we had a ton of fun, first with going to Vitoria for an amazing zone enfoque, and then with a really great intercambio with Elder Engen. Then, after having the transfer jitters all day Saturday, it was really neat to find out that Elder Carter is going to Gandia, and that Elder Engen is training. I’m super excited to be with Elder Noovao again too.
Oh ya, and it rained so much the river went up about 5 meters...flooded big time, so that was cool too. However, the best part of the whole week, was when Francisca, the mother of a member, accepted the invitation to be baptized this coming Saturday. It’s been a really hard time to get her to church, and her daughter has been really patient with her, and very encouraging. It’s been very obvious that the Lord has been helping and preparing her for the past two and a half years since her daughter’s baptism, and we are sure that her baptism will set the example and the rest of her family will soon follow. It’s been really neat to see her progress the past couple of weeks. The only possible hiccup is if she has to work on Saturday, so we’re praying for her to not have to. It’ll be pretty neat though, because the new missionary will get to see how a baptism is done in the Barcelona Spain mission his first week in the field. We are so excited.
So ya, this week was amazing. I hope you all have a great week too.
